About Me

I am obsessed with 45 records, I listen to music on mixed tapes/my walkman.
I love my library!

I can’t get enough of books, sewing, pinball, rug hooking, knitting, crocheting, feathers, going for brunch, fancy stationary, pen palling, post-swapping, preserving, canning, gardening, writing, sculpting and making jewellery, baking fancy pastries and cupcakes... I'm obsessed with polymar clay and modpodge! I love my Sentsy and cookie press...

i've been hibernating in my 'Dreamatorium' this winter...I've been creating crafty messes while listening to This American LIfe and watching old movies... Lately i've been busy sewing quilts and assemble dollhouses and miniatures...

I know far too much about Iceland… it’s a bit of a weird obsession…ask me anything... I have a rediculously cute dog and the best gentleman-friend ever!

I've just started a website www.CrassStitches.com and an etsy by the same name (it's NSFW)

I have CAPD, Dyslexia & Dysgraphia; they tend to rule my life. I often don’t say what I mean… I have a hard time repeating back what you just said when tired or stressed…

I won’t respond to angry or abusive emails. if there is an issue i'll be glad to resend... I always make the effort to send on time and if there are any forseen issues (snow or strike have been the only reasons in the past) I always communicate them... I expect the same in return...

Favorite Music

1950's girl groups Burl Ives!!! Cat Stevens, the new buffalo, lou barlow, cadeaux, jem and the hollograms, Boyfriend Material, GoGoAirheart, the two koreas, bush league, sigur ros, Lay Low Lady and Bird SeaBear Jonsi Petur Ben no dynamics, the constantines, pretty girls make graves, GRAVY TRAIN!!!!, Ninja High School, Aidswolf, sufjan stevens, the hidden cameras, Niel Young, The Postal Service, the postage stamps, Chinese stars, adult, SSM, the guest bedroom, genders, lulu, the dirtbombs, lunchmeat, Sweet Thing, sailboats are white, pony da look, anything good from Toronto or Detroit... I still have a walkman so feel free to make up mixed tapes. i totaly appreciate them!

Favorite Movies

All time fave films: Harold and Maude/ Blade Runner I'm obsessed with all of TCMs programming... The Searchers, Unforgiving, Mean Streets, batteries not included; Big; Serpico; Lonesome Dove; Kill Bill 1&2; Aunti Mame Gritty and gory films; Maniac! Anything Russ Meyers, I enjoy body-switching themed movies... Blacksploitation films, Old school grind house b films (Machete Maidens is a great doc!);

Favorite Television

Coronation St; Ramona; Deadwood; Justified; the kids of degrassi st; the facts of life; puppets who kill; jem and the hollograms; law and order; Fringe; Dr. Who; Made in Canada; addicted to HBO & AMC; terrible sketch comedy shows... oh and good ones like Kids in the hall!

Favorite Crafts

I sew. I felt.
I'm learning how to spin yarn. I knit. I cross stitch. I rug hook.(latch and primative) I love millinery; i wear and make hats all the time... I love wood working... I make kites, sculptures and I paper Mache. I do beadwork. I've been upholstering and finishing furniture I dig out from the trash, I've taken to sewing most of my own clothes... I swap vintage and try and barter most of my goods... I preserve and can most everything… I am a master jam and jelly maker! I still can’t make decent sauerkraut to save my life… I bake GF and regular treats… I enjoy making pretty pies and cakes… I love my piping bag and cookie press! I love working with metals and natural fibres...

Wish List

if someone is looking to gift me something i'd love random postcards... the more risqué and obscene the better. i collect all sorts of post cards, but bizarre and slightly offensive ones i prefer! i've got a dark sense of humour and am really hard to offend...

i'm happy to trade anything for cross stitching supplies- i dye my own Aida Cloth... so any colour is great!

Yarn, ribbon, and beautiful junk!

i also love any kind of music... cds, tapes, records (45's. 33's and 78's)...

Favorite Books

Rosamund Pilcher, Charlain Harris anything (I have almost all her short and novels), Larry McMurtry, David Sadaris,
